The Litigation Law Unit is partnering with the Adelaide Law School Clinical Legal Education Program in two major projects in 2015.
The Clinical Legal Education program places final year law students for one semester in two free legal advice clinics run by the Law School, and other community legal services.
This year students in the program will be working on several major themes including:
- Research into the needs of Self Represented Litigants;
- Developing practical resources for Self Represented Litigants in South Australia;
- Engaging with the legal community to explore the impacts on justice access of unbundling legal advice services; and
- Evaluating the recommendations of the Productivity Commission’s Access to Justice Report (2014) with reference to needs of litigants in South Australia.
